HttpBuster

A very simple way to do http requests in Android using okHttp


Thats it. Now you are ready to make http requests to your api endpoint.

Make GET request

a.) Without any request parameters

httpBuster.makeGetRequest("jokes/random", null, new ApiCallback() {
    @Override
    public void done(BusterResponse response, JSONObject jsonObject, Exception exception) {
        Log.e(TAG, "GET without params done");
    }
});

b.) With request parameters

HashMap<String, Object> map = new HashMap<>();
map.put("firstName", "Mutinda");
map.put("lastName", "Boniface");
httpBuster.makeGetRequest("jokes/random", map, new ApiCallback() {
    @Override
    public void done(BusterResponse response, JSONObject jsonObject, Exception exception) {
        Log.e(TAG, "GET with params done");
    }
});

NB:

  1. The same applies for POST, PUT, DELETE requests
  2. We recommend using a single HttpBuster instance for the entire application- You can do this by intializing your HttpBuster instance via the Application class

Make FILE UPLOAD request

// Add files to be upload 
List<RequestFile> files = new ArrayList<>();
String file = Environment.getExternalStoragePublicDirectory(Environment.DIRECTORY_DOWNLOADS).getPath()+"/no_picture.png";
files.add( new RequestFile("photo", file, MediaType.parse("image/PNG")) );

// add optional payload (this is optional)
HashMap<String, Object> map = new HashMap<>();
map.put("name", "Mutinda Boniface");

httpBuster.makeMultipartRequest("photo-upload/", map, files, new ApiCallback() {
    @Override
    public void done(BusterResponse response, JSONObject jsonObject, Exception exception) {
        Log.e(TAG,  "POST MULTIPART - Response =" +(response!=null? response.getString() :"Not reachable" ));
    }
});
